counter stools


I've had some questions recently about our counter stools, so I thought I would talk a little about them today.  Our kitchen, breakfast and family room area is one open room and it's modest in size.  So to maximize the seating in here I knew I wanted stools for our island.  And I wanted stools that you could lean back in and be a little more comfortable.

*side note - still on the to do list for this kitchen is replacing the backsplash and island lighting...one of these days :)

So I choose these from Restoration Hardware during one of their sale events and have been really happy with them.  I love the look and they have been very functional in this space.  We use them a lot!  They are counter height and I love that they have arm rest and cushions as well.

Here are others that I like.
The only change I would maybe make if I were choosing new ones today, would be picking a lighter color.  Love the weathered oak finish and the light seagrass color.  And how fun are the Serena and Lily Riviera Stools!
Which is your favorite?
Have a great day!


  1. Love the stools. Your house looks so beautiful! Have a great day!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this! I have been looking at the RH counter stools all week for our kitchen island. We have a very similar island with white cabinets and similar carmel granite. I was thinking with going with the weathered oak finish since we have darker would floors and liked the contrast. Thanks again, it helped so much to see them in a actual kitchen setting! They look amazing!

    1. Love the weather oak finish! If I could pick out mine again, I would choose a lighter finish :)

  3. Beautiful kitchen, we want an island in our new home it seems so practical :-)
